As the director of the glee club, it is important to be creative and prepared. This group of talented youngsters is counting on you to display their voices in a way that is harmonious and strong. Some glee clubs opt to sing the typical choir music, but not yours. You have a modern way of thinking, and the kids prefer to sing music that kids their age can relate to. The difficult part is picking music that will showcase the hard work you all put in while still being light enough to get the crowd moving.
Once you have selected the songs, each member of the club will need a handheld copy of the lyrics and sheet music. This physical cheat sheet will pound the ups and downs of each song into the back of their developing brains, so when it is show time there will be no mistakes. The first year you were the director, you purchased 20 copies of sheet music at the music store down the road, which you realized quickly would become pretty costly. Fortunately, the teachers’ lounge area in the school has free WiFi as well as a new inkjet printer.
There are websites on the internet, some that are free and others that cost only a few dollars that anyone can access to find the sheet music for almost any song ever made. Once you register with one of these sites, printing the sheets of music to the inkjet printer will be inexpensive while producing a product that is clearly readable and will not smudge or fade. There are also sites online that have lyrics to almost anything. Just type the song name into the search engine and you should have multiple options. Print out the lyrics, and file one of each sheet together so when you hand them out, the kids each get a music sheet and a lyrics sheet.
